“Average with some problems”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Since my original review seems to have been mislaid by Tripadvisor, I thought I had better write another review.
The hotel is a little down in the mouth with some maintenance required especially in the pool area where some fittings are loose. The rooms are average and So is the food and service. The breakfast was not stocked well during our stay although it was Labour Weekend.
There was absolutely no recognition of Priority Club membership and as a result the rating has been lowered.

Drove from Vegas to Tahoe via Death Valley, and broke the drive by stopping here overnight. Quiet, quaint little town.

This is a solid, older Holiday Inn Express, but still quite nice. Stayed in a standard room (on our Priority Club points), quite basic. Good service, family-run feeling about it. Some road noise, but still got a good night's sleep. Good laundry facilities, even though the front desk didn't have any change! Plenty of parking.

As a platinum Priority Club member, I stay in ICH hotels a great deal and was somewhat disapppointed in this hotel.
The room was OK with all of the expected facilities and was serviced well during our stay. The pool area in my view was unsafe with many of the hand rails being loose. Also the life saver on the wall had broken attachments which may make it hard to detach from the holder.
Breakfast was OK but under stocked with many items not being replenished in a timely fashion. Also coffee containers were not topped up during the day ( staff seem to think that this is not a service they offer outside of breakfast which is not what I have experienced in other HIE).
Reception staff were very helpful

Checked in here for 2 days to explore the area. Bishop seems to be a pleasant enough small town and is a gateway to many other places of beauty.......this hotel isn't one of them! Rooms are pretty basic and need a good clean. Curtains hanging off the poles. The pool and gym areas would benefit from a good scrub, all have chipped paint and mould growing around them.
Breakfast was a shambles, full hotel with very little food out and no one replenishing the food initially but this was soon rectified by a miserable woman who occasionally came around the corner carrying a tray of cinnamon rolls and threw them onto the hot tray and promptly vanished again.
As a priority club ambassador I definitely would not recommend this hotel for even lodging your dogs, the kennels I use back in The UK for mine are cleaner and better organised.....

This property is tired. It was clean and comforrtable enough but noisy. As a Priority Club member we normaly receive a gift bag with at least water and a snack bar; not here. The inn keeper smiled but had an edge. We only stay in Holiday Inns for a night on the road and usually find a high standard of consistency. This was average at best. And it was more expensive than any where we have stayed. The Creek Side across the street is where to stay in Bishop.

We stayed in the jacuzzi suite for 3 nights which was a good sized room with all the amenities! (Fridge, micro, mini kitchen, coffee/tea, iron, hairdryer, king bed, 2 person jacuzzi bathtub in main room) The room was a nicely decorated, quiet, 2nd floor room. We used the hotel as a base camp to explore all the local sights such as the Laws Railroad Museum (must see!!), Alabama Hills (where many movies were filmed) and Mt Whitney (with breathtaking views and beautiful waterfall). The jacuzzi was a wonderful way to relax and unwind after hiking and sightseeing! The indoor pool and sauna area was whimsically painted in a tropical theme which was fun. This was a great value for the money! The continental breakfast was good and the property is within walking distance to restaurants and convenience stores, and best of all, Erick Schat's Bakkery, a lovely dutch bakkery and deli! There is also a city park with a creek and small pond right next to the property. Definately the place to stay when in Bishop!

Room Tip: The jacuzzi room was wonderful!!

Free night due to the IHG Best rate guarantee. It was difficult to see the HEX sign coming from the South until we were almost upon it.
Receptionist cheery and made no comment about our free rate. Rooms had two big double beds so spacious. Ice machine on our floor was not working.
Free ample parking though it was full the next day. Very close to Whiskey Creek one of the limited dining options in Bishop.
Breakfast was OK, usual fayre.
